The Palm Spings Air Museum









 for an entrance, this is the coolest!






Above were the planes from one hanger, which had the aircraft from the European theater of battle



This display is astonishing







Doesn't the above look nearly like a Pixar airplane, you know, the grin below the nose, the canopy as eyes


  Hidden behind the two wings is a Catalina that's getting restored.



Above: Before .. . .. .. . ..

The aircraft's engine had died during takeoff from the U.S.S. Sable, and the plane rolled off the bow of the ship and into the water. Amazingly, the pilot, Ensign William Forbes, survived.

for National Geographic's coverage of this Wildcat from Lake Michigan; http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2012/12/pictures/121211-fighter-plane-world-war-ii-lake-michigan/#/ww2-era-airplane-found-lake-michigan-cockpit_62202_600x450.jpg

Below: After being pulled out of Lake Michigan where it had been since a WW2 training flight went wrong it's been restored.
